Working with Lists

Working with Lists


PowerPoint 2007 Lists Bulleted and numbered lists can be used in your presentation to arrange and format text on slides to draw emphasis to specific information. Lists also can often be easier for the audience to read than paragraphs of text on a slide. In this lesson, you will learn how to modify existing bullets, change bullet style, switch to a numbered list, remove bullets and numbers, and select symbols as bullets.

Working with lists

Some slide layouts include a content placeholder where you can add text or use graphical commands to insert tables, charts, SmartArt graphics, pictures, clip art, and media clips. On these slides, a bullet appears to the left of the placeholder text. If you choose to add text rather than use one of the graphical commands to insert an item, the text is formatted into a list by default.

The default bullet style and color is determined by the theme. The Urban theme has a different default bullet than the Apex theme.
